Thomas Gilman has found a new home to chase his Olympic dreams.

Gilman, one of the nation's top 57-kilogram freestyle wrestlers, announced Friday on Twitter that he is leaving Iowa City and heading to State College to join the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club.

Gilman arrived at Iowa in 2012. He went on to become a three-time All-American for the Hawkeyes before embarking on his international wrestling career. After finishing second at the 2017 World Championships in Paris, Gilman placed fifth in the world the following year in Budapest. Last year, Gilman fell short of making the U.S. team when he lost to Daton Fix at Final X.

Gilman has had a strong year on the mat. In January, he won gold at the Matteo Pellicone, a United World Wrestling rankings event in Rome, Italy. Two months later, Gilman qualified the United States for the Tokyo Olympics at 57 kilograms by winning the Pan American Qualifier in Ottawa, Canada.

Wow, didn't see that coming. With his almost cult-like loyalty to everything, "Hawks," as he says, I wonder what's behind this move.

Either way, good place for him. Let Pennsylvanians deal with him!

Being that I'm fairly new posting comments on here, perhaps someone can answer for me as to why all of these bizarre advertisements that pose as, "wrestling fan comments" are allowed to so freely post in these comments.
